@GOLDworms - It looks cool, especially the polycarb variant.

With that said, would it be possible to get a top-down shot of the board that more clearly displays the “forehead”?

Thanks in advance. I am looking forward to this one.

I do not have a sample kit for UD_40 now for review. Once you receive the sample kit, I will upload a detailed photo.
Thank you.

polycarbonate looks great; makes me want to try ortho again :thinking:
